Cool

Wayne - Parts arrived. All nice and neat in little baggies. Thanks mate, you sent a HEAP of stuff. The car should look great all gold/little silver once I get the chassis and rear pod from Jason and get it built. I'll post pics once I recieve the conversion from Jason. Make sure you let me know when you recieve payment, it was mailed wednesday so you should get it tomorrow or monday at the latest.

Thanks again,
Matthew

I hope this works... here's a pic of the production pod plates I just got from Jason... they went togather smoothly... The ride height adjusters have .001" more room then the other manufactures have their pod plates machined... Make sure there is no flashing on the ride height adjusters and they fit right in... The top holes are 2/56 and the bottom 4/40... The top plates are then countersunk for the 2/56 flat heads..
There are also some new 1/12 front kingpins shown... They were polished, TiCN coated, then diamond polished... lots of work, but worth it... We have 25 pairs of them right now.. Just want to put 1 more week of racing on them to make sure they're ready!!
I'll have some more goodies to take pics of the middle of next week when they come in...

sg1 - The plates look great. Can you make sure that the new IRS ride height adjusters arn't loose in the plates? They fit perfectly in the stock L4 pod plates.

Default 2 q's

1. is there a possibility you would consider making/moding the top pod plate and chassis cross brace to accept dampner tubes?


2. Once the BMI 12th is on the site...will it be available as a kit or can you purchase items separately like just the main plate?

thanks

fast-ho-cars,
The cross brace has 3 sets of holes for tubes, and there are 2 top plates that will come with the conversion...I'll try to get some pics up for you later...
As of now, it will only be as a conversion kit... I'm sure once Jason gets things set he'll have individual componants for sale too... Keep in mind... These parts will only fit this kit... For example, if you try to put a 12L4 cross brace on this, it doesn't fit. There were small changes to the pod plates, top plates, cross brace, dampening post location, shock location...etc...
Hope this helps...
Wayne

fast-ho-cars - I will be setting mine up with damper tubes. Wayne sent me an upper plate to use with the tubes when my conversion arrives. The upper plate looks great.

Here are some pics of the bmi conversion set up with damper tubes.

There have probabley been slight changes to the design since these pics though. Pics from mid september 04.
